  • Global Health Voyager, Inc. (GLHV) Executes MOU to Purchase Assets of PlanetHospital 1 comment
    Sep 22, 2011 10:12 AM
    On Wednesday, Global Health Voyager, Inc. announced that they entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (NASDAQ:MOU) on September 1, 2011 with PlanetHospital (NYSE:PH) to acquire all the PlanetHospital assets from Healthcare International Network, LLC. Terms of the transaction, a pure asset purchase with no ties to any existing liabilities, were not disclosed. The expectation is that the deal will close on or before October 1, 2011. GHV is a full-service, web-based, medical tourism facilitator. PH is the largest medical travel facilitator in the U.S.

    Ali Moussavi, GHV president and CEO, said, “We are extremely pleased to welcome Rudy Rupak, founder and CEO of PlanetHospital, to the GHV management team as the president of the PlanetHospital division. Rudy is internationally recognized as an industry pioneer, enjoys high visibility in the marketplace, and provides a strong voice for the medical tourism community. He will play an important leadership role in advancing our global positioning and driving GHV business objectives.”

    Ali Moussavi points to the significant value of combining a public entity with the high-profile PlanetHospital brand, adding, “Founded in 2002, PlanetHospital captured first mover advantage with the introduction of a medical tourism platform that offers Americans options for accessing high quality healthcare treatments outside the United States at significantly lower costs. The Company quickly captured the attention of national and international media, generating wide consumer interest in its programs. Self-insured employers, insurers, third party administrators and other intermediaries also rely upon the PH platform for offering employees a medical travel benefit.”

    Rudy Rupak, Founder and CEO of PlanetHospital, commented, “I am delighted that PlanetHospital is finally going to be a listed company. This is not an exit strategy for us, but rather an opportunity to really grow the business aggressively and take it to the next level. Expect great things.”

    Headquartered in Beverly Hills, California, GHV is a full-service medical tourism facilitator. The Company offers access to a global network of highly accredited facilities and providers to patients looking for healthcare, surgical, dental, and wellness procedures. GHV is a one-stop medical tourism resource. They provide consumers, employers, payers and other intermediaries the ability to choose and access information about a broad spectrum of destinations, hospitals, procedures and services from one convenient location. The Company, via established relationships with international providers, has already done the groundwork to verify the accreditation and experience of the provider organizations they offer.

    We would like to inform you that Kiran Infertility Centre has decided to terminate its relationship with PlanetHospital. the reason for the same was because of all the irregularities and fraud and money laundering committed by Mr. Rudy Rupak Acharya during his time with PlanetHospital as CEO of PlanetHospital. He has committed acts to de-fame Kiran Infertility Centre by spreading wrong information, creating false web-sites and e-mail IDs of Kiran Infertility Centre and its associates and providing false information to clients.
